Virgin Money London Marathon 2018

London Marathon

Support the National Literacy Trust with your own London Marathon place.

The London Marathon is the UK's landmark race, and the world’s most famous marathon.

Each year 35,000 runners take part and thousands of cheering spectators line the iconic course through central London from Blackheath to The Mall: the atmosphere is, quite simply, incredible.

The London Marathon ballot places have been released. If you have secured a place or know someone who has, we’d be thrilled if you or they would join our team.

By running for the National Literacy Trust with your own place you can help us change the life stories of some of the UK’s most vulnerable children. Our team will be supporting you every step of the way and make sure you have an incredible marathon experience. No minimum sponsorship is required - just raise as much as you are able for the charity.

Each runner raising sponsorship for the National Literacy Trust will receive:

  •         A National Literacy Trust running vest with your name on it
  •         A fundraising pack containing lots of great fundraising tips and ideas
  •         Dedicated support from our events team

If you'd like to use your ballot place to support the National Literacy Trust, Suzie Curran, our Senior Fundraising and Events Manager would love to hear from you. Please email suzie.curran@literacytrust.org.uk or call 020 7820 6254.
